ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Left atrial appendage thrombus

History: 80 year-old man with a known history of rate-controlled atrial fibrillation and aortic stenosis presented one week prior to study with facial droop.

Findings: • There is a low-attenuating mass in the left atrial appendage. This is most suggestive of a thrombus. • The trileaflet aortic valve is calcified and stenotic, with a systolic valve area of 1.4-1.7cm^2. • There are no infective vegetations present on either the aortic or mitral valves.

Ddx: Infective endocarditis Left atrial myxoma Papillary fibroelastoma Metastatic disease

Exam: Left sided facial droop with noted drooling. INR 1.3

No MeSH data available.
